    • @Huan22,

      Nokia is really great when it comes to phone. And I can say reliable when it comes to it’s service

      Dexter | Tech At Hand Dot Nets last blog post..Poor Conversion Rate

  • I am so excited!
    I love Nokia and now with this excellent product (N97) on the horizon I am even more anxious!
    A few question:
    When will it be available in the US?
    Who will the provider be?
    What will the cost be?
    Has anyone used it as a “phone”?
    I rely solely on my cell phone so I have to have a GOOD and RELIABLE cell phone. No dropped calls or switching back and forth between 3G, EDGE, or GSM!
    Thanks in advance!
    Ronald G.

    • @Ronald G.,

      Nokia is always reliable when it comes to phone ๐Ÿ™‚

      The N97 will launch with a retail price set at around รขโ€šยฌ550 ($693) excluding subsidies and taxes, phone to ship in firs quarter of 2009.

      I have heard that it will be available as unlocked phone. so any provider will work with this phone.

      I myself have not tried it. But maybe somebody else here tried it before
